Campe, J.H.]
London: Stockdale, 1789. 8vo, 265, (7, ads)pp. With a frontispiece, an illustration in the text, and 31 woodcut plates by John Bewick all within the collation. Modern blue boards, cloth backstrip, internally a very good copy with some browning and a few leaves torn at corners with no loss of text. First issued in four volumes (or four vols. in two) in 1788, an edition that is referred to as being of great rarity, and reissued in 1789 in one volume but with the same plates and no note on the title-page of being a reissue. The 1789 is also quite uncommon, being located (like the 1788) in a tiny number of libraries in North America and the UK. 3 sets of the 1788 edition have sold at auction since 1975, and only one copy of the 1789. A very popular title across Europe, this book was published in German by Campe in 1788, immediately translated into French and thence into English all in the same year. The British edition (which was quickly followed by an American edition) was illustrated by John Bewick and a few of the plates are signed "J. Bewick del. & sct." Pomeroy 189 cites the title as illustrated by Anderson in a NY edition of 1806. Osborne p.239. Oppenheimer 345, 6, and 7, had both editions, citing Hugo 33 and Gumuchian 4876.

This and her friend and collaborator Joseph Walker's Historical Memoirs of the Irish Bards (1786) together mark a new and significant movement in Irish culture. Inspired indirectly by the fabrications of Macpherson's Ossian and more directly by such as Thomas Percy's Reliques of Ancient English Poetry they represent the first literary fruit in Ireland of the romantic movement. "Each, and more particularly [this book], is an important milestone in the later cultural history of the country and, in particular, in that Anglo-Irish component of the modern Irish nation. Both authors break new ground in that they direct attention away from the contemplation of the remote past to an observation of the contemporary Irish cultural scene and from historical speculation to literary appreciation of vernacular poetry. Miss Brooke does this of set purpose and to an incomparably greater extent than Walker".

A fine set of these plates, including nine in counterproof: A 'Superb and very rare work by a great artist, whose craftmanship is equal to the best of the 18th century': (Dunthorne). This work seems to have been published at various times in various forms: most authorities agree that the work should comprise a title and 79 plate (Dunthorne calls for 77), most give 1801 as the date of publication on the title (Henrey give 1795) but a number of copies have appeared at auction dated 1784. This copy contains 80 plates and is dated 1789 on the title. The plates fall into two main categories. There are 10 plates of "designs" with a floral theme, and 69 plates of more straight-forward botanical subjects, either single sprays or small bouquets, often tied with ribbon. 34 of the plates show the subjects within ovals defined by a bodycolor border, 42 have simple lined borders.

London printed by John Nichols. for D. Henry late of St. John's Gate: and sold by E. Newbery 1789 - Two volumes (the second in two parts), 8vo, pp. [iv], 494, [2] advertisements; [ii], 63, [1]; 368; the text of each volume bound with the wrong title page (i.e. the first title page is bound with the text block for volume II and vice versa), but complete; signature and catchword to first page of preface cropped, else a very good copy in contemporary calf, red and dark green morocco labels, a little worn but very sound. First edition thus, but the second edition of Johnson's Preface. The first General Index to the Gentleman's Magazine, covering the first twenty volumes, was published by Edward Cave in February 1753: the indexing was done by Edward Kimber, but the preface was by Samuel Johnson, who had been Cave's loyal employee and man-of-all-work back in the early 1730s. Thirty-six years later the Magazine published an updated and more comprehensive index, compiled by the antiquary and scholar Samuel Ayscough (1745-1804). Arthur Sherbo's biography of Ayscough in new DNB takes his subject to task for its many shortcomings - for instance, as he says, all the surnames are indexed without Christian names attached, resulting in hundreds of entries for 'Smith' without any indication of which Smith is being referred to. Sherbo's account is not, however, without its own problems: he quotes the first lines of the index's preface, assuming it to be by Ayscough, but curiously he actually quotes the version which had appeared in 1753, referring to the desirability of an index to a work w … [Click Below for Full Description]
